    You’re good. I hope you had a good trip!

    (And yes, detonators were what I was thinking too.)

    ~~~~

    Solstice crouched atop one of the large generators and stuck the magnetic detonator to the metal surface. She jumped to the next generators and attached several more of the small bombs to them.

    “All ready up here,” she called softly down to Goane.

    “Good. I’m almost finished with mine,” Goane said, tossing and catching a detonator casually as he scanned the room. He pointed to a small computer next to one of the machines. “Go see if that terminal can tell us where an exit is.”

    Solstice nodded and leapt down. After several quick taps she located a small map.

    “Well… there’s no official exit near us, but…” Solstice looked up to where a wide pipe led upward from one of the generators. Goane paused and followed her gaze. He warily eyed the pipe, and the shrugged.

    “Hey, climbing up that thing beats getting shot at,” Goane grinned as he placed the last detonator and started over to her.

    Solstice scrambled up the generator and ignited her lightsaber, beginning to cut through the metal. The pipe sizzled and sparked as the plasma blade bit into its surface. Steam hissed as it escaped the hollow pipe.

    The commotion nearly masked the sound of approaching droids.

    Solstice heard the droids a moment too late.

    “Solstice, look out!” Goane shouted just as the head droid fired. Solstice felt Goane shove her to the side using the Force. A blaster bolt grazed her shoulder, zipping past the exact spot her head had been a moment before.

    “…I’m not the same person that I was…”
    “Some folks only grow more beautiful.”

    (Sry it’s taken me a while lol…)

    Zeinli glanced at the direction the padawans had gone, worry creased her brows.
    They were making their way through the sea of smashed, blasted, and sliced battle droids, going through more as they came.
    She sliced at more droids, dodging their blasts.
    Will was doing the same beside her, and fellow clones and wolf  people were also making the best of their efforts.

    The padawans had been gone for a long while now. Jaina had informed Zeinli of what they had decided to do, but things were getting rough, and if they didn’t stop the factory, she figured this was almost a lost cause.
    Zeinli hoped that the other group had managed to rescue the king.

    Suddenly, a loud and large explosion went off. The dome of fire and smoke rose high into the sky, the team could see it from the gates.
    “woah…” Noaa murmured into the comm from his view in the sky.
    Jaina watched the smoke rise and disperse in the gray clouds with eyes of horror.

    Zeinli watched for a moment as a new sense of encouragement and energy booted around inside her. Then she waved at the team to finish up what they had started, “Let’s finish this!”

    lol, you’re good.

    ~~~~

    Ivaylo, Bo’, Gryphon, and the king charged out of the dark city streets and into the battle. Ivaylo offered cover for the others with his lightsaber while Gryphon and Bo’ fired at any droids within sight. They quickly reached Jaina and Zeinli’s sides and joined their efforts.

    “What are you doing here?” Zeinli asked.

    “Our exit was cut off,” Ivaylo grunted. “There’s only one way out now, and that’s the front gate.”

    Everyone braced themselves as a nearby explosion rocked the earth.

    “Get the king out of here,” Zeinli said, recovering. “We’ll finish off these droids and then join you.”

    “But what about the Padawans?” Jaina asked. “Solstice and Goane… Are we sure they got out all right?”

    “We can’t afford to wait. We have to the king out of here as soon as possible,” Ivaylo said. “They can meet up with us at the ship.”

    “They might need help,” Jaina said. Her face was unreadable underneath her Mandalorian helmet, but both Zeinli and Ivaylo sensed her unease. They exchanged looks, and then Zeinli placed a hand on Jaina’s shoulder.

    “You know Goane. He’ll get himself and Solstice out of there unharmed, I’m sure.”

    Jaina nodded hesitantly, and then returned to firing her energy bow.

    Gryphon took the king’s arm and started toward the front gate.

    Not three steps away from escape a band of uniformed wolf-people moved to block the exit. The traitorous governor stood at their head, a sinister fanged smile drawn across his face.

    “…I’m not the same person that I was…”
    “Some folks only grow more beautiful.”

    Sry for the wait, I just couldn’t think of what to write next Lolol XD

    ——-

    “Set blasters to stun, all of you.” Zeinli commanded through her comm. “I’m not killing anyone today. We just need enough time to get the king to safety.” “Copy that.” Steady replied.
    “Rodger, Rodger.” Reel said, then let out, “-No! I’m no droid! I meant.. Uh… Righto!”
    Will laughed and set his gun to stun.
    “Zeinli…”
    Zeinli turned to her cousin.
    Jaina hung her bow on her back, “I loaned my blaster out to one of the clones. My bow, I can’t set it to stun. What should I do?”
    Zeinli pondered this a moment, then tossed Jaina her shoto saber. “Protect the clones and wolf people from getting killed.”
    Zeinli could sense the determination in her younger cousin, and Jaina gave her a nod.
    Jaina lit the small saber, which fit the mini Mandalorian in size pretty well.
    Zeinli nodded, then motioned for them to try to clear a way through.

    Sorry, I didn’t see your post until just now!!

    And you’re fine, I’ve been a little busy anyways.

    ~~~

    Solstice and Goane quickly made their way through the smoking rubble of the droid factory. A heavy layer of ash and soot coated their clothes and skin. Twisted and deformed pieces of metal and machinery littered the ground.

    “I’d say we did a good job, wouldn’t you?” Goane said.

    “Yes,” Solstice said, wrinkling her nose at the stench of burnt metal. “We’d better head back now. We don’t want them to leave without us.”

    “Yeah,” Goane agreed, and then started in the direction of the gate. “But they wouldn’t leave without me.”

    “Oh really? And why is that?” Solstice asked with a small smile of amusement.

    “I’m too adorable.”

    Solstice rolled her eyes. “If you say so, Goane.”

    After a few minutes of trekking through the blast zone, Solstice halted. Goane stopped a moment after her. Goane turned and met Solstice’s eyes.

    “Something went wrong,” Solstice said. “I can tell. The plan’s changed,” she looked to where the sounds of battle came from, eyes wide. “Hurry, we have to get to the gate and help them!”

    @winter_rose lol it’s okiii

    —-

    (decided to peak into the close connecting minds that is “Goaina” lol 😉 )

    Jaina? What’s happening? 

    Goane? You’re alive! 
    Jaina’s joyful exclamation echoed through his head.
    Goane smiled as he and Solstice hurried to the battle ahead. Then she added,
    Just more battling. What else? 

    We are on the way. 
    Goane replied.

    Good, we are trying to get the king safely on the ship. Could use some aid there. 

    Will do

    that was more boring than I thought it would be. Wellppp

    “Goaina” 😂 Perfect.

    ~~~

    “Sir, we’re holding them off for now, but it’s not long before they break through our lines,” the hologram of the wolf captain said. The wolf governor paced anxiously, stroking his chin in concentration.

    “I’m calling for reinforcements,” the governor finally said.

    “No,” Count Dooku’s hologram said. “You will not call for reinforcements. Tell your men to fall back.”

    The governor protested. “But… but sir! If they get through to Courscant-”

    “Oh, I’m not planning on letting them get to Couruscant.” A sinister smile crept across Dooku’s face.

    “If the king joins the Republic, we will be overwhelmed by their forces!”

    “Did you not hear me? Call off your men, governor.”

    “But sir-”

    “Do as I say!” Dooku snapped, and then quickly composed himself. There was still an edge to his voice when he spoke again. “Or you may find yourself quickly and quietly… replaced.”

    The governor gulped, and activated his captain’s hologram. “Fall back.”

    ~~~~

    Sooo, I was thinking that maybe Dooku sends a battle cruiser or something to capture them and their ship? Because right now we have… *mumbles* one two three… FIVE people with lightsabers, so basically Jedi, and then the king and the prince. All super valuable to the Republic. So Dooku thinks he can use them as bargaining chips or hostages.

    Does that sound good?

    Yes. Lolol tis indeed. XD

    —————

    Zeinli watched the wolf people back down and begin to retreat.
    “To the ship! Go, go, go!” She hollered.
    Ivaylo and the king were already nearing it.
    The clones all hurried to follow Zeinli and Will.
    Jaina was looking out for the padawans as she followed.
    ———-

    welp.

    That’s a good idea

    @emma-walker

    I had another idea. Maybe some characters get separated from the rest, and the main group has to leave without them. And then the separated characters rescue everyone on the battle cruiser.

    If we were to do this maybe we could switch it up so the characters who haven’t seen a lot of each other are together.

    ~~~
    Solstice and Goane ran toward the front gate. They watched in confusion as the wolf-people began a frenzied retreat.

    “Where are they going?” Goane asked. “Why are they running off?”

    “I don’t know, but it really helps us,” Solstice said, and then pointed. “Look, there’s Masters Zeinli and Ivaylo! If we hurry we can catch up with them before they reach the ship!”

    Goane nodded and resumed running. “Let’s go!”

    @winter_rose That’s a good idea.

    ———————

    Zeinli watched the padawans running toward them, but pointed to the ship, gesturing that they go. Jaina and Will were running just ahead of her, also towards the ship. Zeinli paused and made sure that every clone was on their way, becoming the caboose and following behind Bo’.
    Unfortunately, a few traitorous wolf people didn’t care about the orders. They were close behind as well, ready to kill off any who lagged behind.

    @emma-walker

    So who do you think should get captured and who should be separated? Hmmm.

    ~~~

    Solstice reached the boarding ramp and turned back to look at those still running toward the ship. She spotted Cresh supporting an injured clone. The two were beginning to lag behind. Zeinli and Bo’ turned and defended the rear of the group, which consisted of the slower injured.

    “Rookie! Come help me,” Solstic reached out and grabbed her friend’s arm. The two hurried to the back of the line and helped others along.

    “Hurry,” Zeinli said. “They’re beginning to circle us.” She took in a quick breath. “Solstice! Don’t let them cut us off!”

    Several wolves were moving in a pincher motion to block their escape to the ship. Solstice ducked away from the other and jumped forward, igniting her lightsaber. She waved it threateningly at one group of wolves, and then the opposite group. Soon Zeinli joined her, and together they kept a path for the rest of the clones. Bo’ guarded the very end of the line. Slowly they made their way toward the ship

    ~~~

    So, if we separate everyone that is on the verge of being cut off by the wolves, that would give us

    Zeinli, Bo’, Cresh, Solstice, Rookie, and a handful of clones in the rescue group, and

    everyone else in the captured group.

    But we could still switch it up.

    That’ll work fine. Sry for not responding, I’ve been trying to think of how to write this next bit and I’ve been busy too…

    —————————

    The crew was trying desperately to get to the ship, but even the wolves could tell that the two Jedi didn’t want to harm them, and cut their way of escape.
    “Zeinli!” Jaina called from the ramp.
    “Go on ahead! Leave us here!” Zeinli replied.
    Jaina’s shoulders fell.
    “We will find a way! Get the king to Corruscant now!”
    Jaina nodded and a clone closed the ramp as she went to speak to Master Ivaylo.
    ———————————

    i decided that I won’t immediately use this story in a chapt of my fanfic for a while yet, I need some stuff to happen first. Instead of using your characters I would be using a new padawan as well as Mace Windu, and some other clones, if you agree to it. I may copy and paste from this a good bit, there’s been some pretty good ness and quotes and stuff. XD

    @emma-walker

    That’s all right.

    ~~~

    The ship lifted off of the ground and quickly rose into the atmosphere.

    Solstice watched as it left her and the others behind, trying to work through her tangle of emotions about being left behind.

    “What do we do now, General?” Bo’ asked Zeinli. The remaining clones began falling back to Zeinli as the wolf-people closed in on them. Zeinli was quiet for a moment, and then looked to Solstice.
    “On my signal, clear a path to the forest. We’ll regroup there.”

    Solstice nodded. The wolf-people pressed closer and closer. Their long fangs gleamed dangerously as they advanced, constricting the remaining ground that the Jedi held.

    “Now!” Zeinli called, and Solstice jumped forward, swinging her blade dangerously close to the wolf-people. A few of them yelped, and the smell of singed fur filled the air. With the realization of how dangerous the lightsaber was, the wolf soldiers fell back, making a clear path to the forest.
    “Go!” Zeinli commanded.

    They moved as quickly as they could into the woods. Zeinli and Bo’ brought up the rear. As soon as they were within the safety of the forest, Zeinli deactivated her lightsaber, and then vanished from sight.

    ~~~

    Ok, that sounds good, and I’m fine with you doing that. Btw, I finished reading your fan fic, and it’s great! I can’t wait to read more of the story.
